Interesting. I'm assuming that the Clone Wars two-packs are the Hostage Crisis ones, and that the collector packs are the four-packs that have the DVDs.

Yeah, but wasn't Target supposed to get some 3 figure packs that were made up to look like the 3-pks that came out back in the 80's? The collector packs could be those as well. I wouldn't mind grabbing one of those just for nostalgia's sake.

Well, those "three-packs" are only coming boxed together - that is, a huge nine-pack that opens up to reveal three different three-packs. They're not being sold individually.

It's a shame, but I think we will catch a break on the pricing. I heard it was 50 bucks? Whereas individually $7 X $9 is $63.

This was posted on another forum...."Good news fellow Star Wars *****starting this Sunday Target is having its first Star Wars holiday sale. For those who complain about Target’s prices on figures here is the relief on your wallet for one week only $ 5.00 for any Star Wars figure that includes vintage figures as well. I have included the photo of the new weekly ad that starts this Sunday. Check your local Target weekly ad for details this Sunday. "

***This is official..ALL STAR WARS figures $5 starting this sunday at TARGET!!!!!!includes vintage

The image only shows Clone Wars figures and "choose from assorted Star Wars [etc.] figures." I'll definitely check it out, but I'm not betting on them reducing Vintage to $5. I already have everything from the first two waves and don't really care to army-build anything that's come out so far. Hopefully Saga Legends will be reduced as well, though.

Here's the good news....Walmart will price match and all of my walmarts have at least 10-15 pegs full of saga/cw/ and vintage.....good hunting tomorrow a.m.

I went to the nearby Target and got two Snowtroopers for $5 each. The only other figure I was interested in was a 501st Trooper, but his limbs were off-white. No sign of the new endcap, though I've read that another (sort of) in my area has gotten in some of the new stuff.

No endcap at mine either. Got 4 Iron Man 2 figs and used the $5 off coupon so I got them for $15, which was a pretty good deal. I didn't get a coupon, just a congratulations to the Target race car driver for winning. Kinda odd. :cross-eye

So.......does anyone have the dcpi code for the at st battle pack? it is the only one i am intersted in purchasing as i army build snowtroopers and need an at st for my diorama. Thanks!

The code for that one is 087-06-2249. However, that is the code for both of the Hoth sets so you'll know if they have them but not exactly which set of the two it is if you have them just pull one from the back.

If Targets across the country get their endcaps up this weekend, what does that leave for the rest of 2010 as far as figures go?????? WAVE 3 and nothing else until 2011?????

There are still some battle packs people are looking for as well as some new vehicles which are supposed to be rolling out soon. I live pretty far from a Walmart and the TRUs around me aren't that great so Target is generally my primary place of purchase. Here's hoping they get the other merch in before the end of the year.

Well, you better get a move on!!!! heehee....I did cheat by buying 50 or so TVC snowtroopers loose for $2 a piece...But you're right, I was very kind and pleasantly asked the employees to do an inventory check and they said..."oh yeah, we have some in the back, let me go get them for you" (then I do a silent ewok celebration dance :lipsrsealed:)

I was able to get the Attack on Hoth pack today!! A nice set for the price, and I had a $5 coupon that had printed for me previously at target, so I was able to get the set for $34.99 plus tax. Now...does anyone have the dcpi for the tie fighter and snowspeeder?? :) It is time for me to acquire those too! :yes:

So I went to see about the tie and snowspeeder. I talked with a manager in the end who told me that the policy was that he can not go to the back and pull out collectibles. He tells me this right after someone was able to pull one attack on hoth set for me. ????? He tells me that I probably just "caught someone new", but that he would not do it for me. The target scan pad thingy showed the tie and snowspeeder in stock. Oh well. I guess I must wait. This city sometimes really sux in situations like these. I bet if I were a beautiful woman this "Mike" guy would have pulled it from the stock room for me. :rolleyes:

Many employees only say that sort of thing because they just don't feel like walking to the back of the store to look. Your best bet in this situation would be to ask to speak to a manager; don't just take one employee's word for it.

Target in Manhattan Kansas has put up its endcap displays, so I was able to pick up the R2-D2/C-3PO two pack. As luck would have it, it was the last set left on the shelf. R2 is preaty nice. He's probably my favorite version I have of him mostly because of the doors that open. Too bad they couldn't work the sensor scope into him like they did on the clone wars version though. I'm kinda suprised that this rarely happens. I think this is the first time I can remember seeing the two of them come together before.

However, there end cap display had only 2nd and 1st wave figures for the vintage collection. Still havn't seen the 3rd wave (which as far as I'm concerned is THE wave).

Found the Geonosis Arena 2packs yesterday and picked up 3PO and R2, the only set I wanted as I'm not into that scene, but a better-articulated Battle Droid 3PO and a new R2 body are good things.

This whole 2nd wave is apparently going to be pretty low in number, so get while the getting is possible - I didn't want to spend another $13 after buying 2 Saga Legends figures at WM for $3.50 (they were on clearance for no reason) and 2 Fire Troopers for $5 each, but I couldn't say no to a new R2 and semi-new 3PO (the limbs are from 4-LOM).

R2 has a clear radar eye, which is odd, but at least it's not blue. The new body has fairly crisp sculpting and a new smaller door that opens on the left with a prequel cutting arm and details inside the body. The back has a new winch and more detail inside. The dome is just silver paint, not mind-blowing or super shiny or anything.

3PO has a pretty decent paint job, dull metallic AOTC with lots of black weathering dry-brush, some red bits, 1 gray bit, very gold eyes. The head has a great sculpt that I think is borrowed from the BAD version. The figure is a little taller than the BAD though and has the wider shoulders from 4-LOM, but he can move nicely. The head is on a ball-joint (though it can only rotate) and pops out to pop in a nicely-sculpted Battle Droid head, but that head has somewhat big eyes and no weathering at all (yes, it came out of the factory, but somehow they always have wear).

R2 is mainly the reason I got this set, but I concidered the 3PO a bonus. I thought it was strange that he comes with a clear eye too, but for some reason I think it works. Looks almost like there's a reflection in it or something.

With regards to the Hoth sets, I'm mainly interested in getting the beardless Rebel Trooper and the AT-ST Driver. I'd be happy to pay $15 for each of these (plus shipping), so if anyone is interested in splitting the sets with me, please drop me a PM. I realise these are the most desirable figures, but there maybe someone who would like an AT-ST and a couple of snowtroopers for $25, or some extra Rebel stuff for the same?

This month Target FINALLY opened a store closer to where I live. I stopped in this afternoon; they didn't seem to have any TVC past wave 1. I saw 1 Hoth UBP but didn't pick it up bc it doesn't come with a turret. That ATST still looks amazing. Also saw a LEGO Cad bane speeder, not sure if that was exclusive or not.

It's the new AT-ST in slightly different colors. It's not sporting the ESB AT-ST's squad logo on the side though, as far as I know.

That Rebel set is awfully tempting. Still, it's forty bucks. No interest at all in the Imperial set; that new driver looks downright stupid.

The new Geonosis sets look astoundingly subpar. I wanted the goatee Jedi and was thinking of the Rodian. But then I saw them. Ten bucks these are not worth.

What's wrong with the AT-ST Driver or Geonosis sets?

10-18-2010, 10:44 PM
The AT-ST Driver, I dunno, I didn't care at all for the GIJoe-styled webgear. He didn't look Star Warsy to me. Not the design, just the execution. And, well, I just don't need another guy to sit in a cockpit and not be seen.

The Geonosis sets all had really, really bad paint, and most of them had headsculpts that I don't think would've passed muster a decade ago. Anakin was especially bad. Maybe if the new guys (or new guy and Rodian resculpt) are still around when these hit half price, I'll pick them up.

I think the "webgear" is actually the harness that the actors wore while in the AT-ST cockpit. It's in the movie, but can only be seen while the AT-ST Drivers are actually operating the AT-ST. I haven't seen any of the new Target sets yet, but I'm pretty sure the harness on the figure is removable.

I saw and was tempted with four of these last night: TIE, Snowspeeder, Rebel and Imperial Hoths. But like El Chuxter, I passed due to cost. But in the checkout aisle behind me: dude getting a TIE Fighter and the Hoth turrets.

10-24-2010, 10:36 PM
I know the TIE cockpit is the newer detailed version, but I have no idea why anyone would buy the short-wing version. You know Hasbro is going to release a gray (long-wing) version again eventually.

I have considered buying the short-wing version just for the cockpit and then just swapping the wings out for the bigger version. I worry that the paint jobs won't match though.

I wish they'd ditch the pop-off wings features. The wings never stay parallel, especially if you want to display it in the air. I did some trickery with fishing wire to get mine parallel.

Yeah, it is removable. The figure looks alot better without it I think. Although, it has the same problem with the goggles and helmet as the Vintage AT-AT commander has; they dont fit right over the helmet or beneath it, so you just have to display him without the goggles accessory.

You're right that the Geonosis sets arent that impressive (especially the horrible Super Battle Droid), but the R2 and 3PO set is well worth it. The AOTC C3PO in that set is the best version of that figure yet. The metallic paint job is nice and the detals on the fig are pretty good too. Well worth the $$$.

I wouldn't be so sure about some of the Clone Wars battlepack characters being re-issued on cards.
Hasbro has yet to even re-issue quite a few CW carded figures.

I got the Senate Commando 2pk and the Bounty Hunters BP yesterday.
